~~  ~~

Wrapped in you O paper, seen you a tree;
'fore rolled down stream,under your shade 'twas me.
O scissors, I  prithee you; 
forbid make play an issue..
Snip mine paper, knock on thy head with glee.  


6th place in the contest

    Strong limerick here, Gautami. To me, this reads just like a limerick as if Shakespeare had written it. Old-school, but cool :D Congratulations on your win~!
